24-Hour Time Traveler

 

If you could go back in time and witness any 24-hour period in world history, what event would you choose?

 

I’m offering you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  Here’s the deal.

You are about to travel back in time.  You get to pick any 24-hour period in history and witness what happened.  Think of what this means.  This is your one and only chance to satisfy any curiosity, observe a monumental historical event, or perhaps solve a great mystery.

So — which event would you choose to experience, and why?

This is the topic of a new Facebook discussion group I created, called “An Unconventional Convention.”  A few times each week, different questions are asked on Facebook and readers respond.  Although only three questions have been asked so far, more than 300 replies have been posted  Many answers we far more intriguing than anyone might have expected.

Today’s question is on a serious topic.  Accordingly, here are a few helpful hints:  You might choose to witness an epic moment in history.  Perhaps you’d like to experience a past religious event or spiritual revelation.  Maybe you’ll select a scientific breakthrough or moment of great discovery.  Or, you could opt for a more personal experience in your life, or perhaps a family-related event that’s meaningful.  You hold the key to pass through any closed door.  There are no wrong answers.

Let’s agree to some rules:  You must remain on the earth.  The time span allowed is any 24-hour period since the world began.  You cannot travel into the future.  While you observe, you will not participate or be noticed in any way.  You cannot alter the course of history.  You are prohibited from profiting from your time travel.  For instance, you can’t return to the present and write a book or go around giving TED talks, afterward.  You are given the opportunity to bear witness purely for your own knowledge, amusement, and satisfaction.

This should be both fun and interesting.

By the way, I still haven’t made up my mind what I’m going to post and how I will answer.  This is a really tough question.
